Perry, who the love interest of Lawrence on "Insecure", previously discussed the fact that fans appear to believe she is similar to her character on the show.

Female fans get upset over her on-screen romance with Jay Ellis, who plays Lawrence.

DomiNque previously told Essence, "She's such a love/hate character. I get so much hate mail. I've even had a girl be like, 'Oh, my God, you know I want to fight you, right?'"

Perry, who is from Houston and has been acting since the tender age of seven, revealed she has been called really ugly names with "bank teller" attached to the end.

Perry stated that she understands why women hate her character on the series. 

She explained, "For a lot of women, she [Tasha] represents that side chick or that other woman that ruined a happy home. [But] I really don't feel like Tasha is like that at all. She's just caught in the middle of Issa and Lawrence's situation. I feel like she's just innocent in it all, to be honest. I think she just sees good in him and she just wants to instill some knowledge in him and some self esteem and some confidence to let him know, 'This is just a phase you're going through in life and it will be great. And I would love to walk that walk with you, if you'll have me.'"

Perry adds, "I don't think that she was scheming or trying to get him like she has a back story or some kind of alternative motive. She's just going with the flow. What's wrong with that?"

Perry went on to add, "I think this is one of the most lit shows on television. It was definitely needed, so I'm just happy to be a part of it whether people hate me, I mean, hate Tasha, love Tasha — it's whatever. I'm just so happy to be a part of it. It doesn't get to Tasha or me."

5 foot 1, brown, and beautiful 💪🏽
